British Council

The British Council is the UK's leading international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations. We work in more than 100 countries with over 10,000 leaders and decision-makers each year. British Council Cameroon connects you with learning opportunities and creative ideas from the UK.


We have increased the impact and reach of our work in English and Exams, giving many more Cameroonian students access to international opportunities, and making a major contribution to better quality English learning through radio.

We offer and support a wide range of exams, including IELTS, school exams and many other university, and professional examinations. These exams are recognised internationally and are a good way of measuring your ability in English. Employers use the exams to select employees with good English and universities often use IELTS to check the English ability of potential students. Find out more about the exams we offer in Cameroon.
